First Qualifying round kicked off yesterday. Lots of Yanks in action.

Kitchen played 10 minutes off the bench in a 2-1 away win for Hearts. Will likely go 30-45' next game and then back into starting lineup.

Cole Grossman and Stabek drew 0-0 in Wales.

Will John (30 yr old career low level journey man) started and played 70' in a 2-0 away win in Ireland.

Sachem Wilson (22yr old forward)- played 5 min off the bench in a 3-0 loss for his Slovenian club vs Tel Aviv.

Cork City, coached by american John Caulfield won 1-0 over a Northern Ireland team. Im pretty sure this makes him the first American manager to win a game in European competition.

Will John started and was subbed off at half time as his Finnish team advances.

Sachem Wilson went 25' as his team was eliminated vs tel aviv.

John caulifield led cork city to the next round becoming first American manager to advance in a euro competition.

Good to see caulifield and kitchen advance.

Kitchen is all done with Europe this year. With him out injured Hearts fell to a team from Malta. Will John also saw his Finnish team eliminated.

Cork City and US Manager John Caulifield did advance however. Now the going gets real tough for them as they'll face off with Genk from Belgium. John Brooks and Hertha also join the fray this round and will face off against Brondby. Neither has an easy draw so hopefully at least one of them can win and advance

Brooks returns and went 90' in a first leg win over bronby. Caulifield and cork city lost just 1-0 to a good genk team on the road so they still have a chance. Hopefully we get some yanks make it to the group stage.

Pellegrino Matarazzo and VfB Stuttgart got their Bundesliga campaign off the ground on Saturday with a win over Mainz.
